Well, I’ve shed a lot of blood, sweat and tears. I’ve made it to 44,000 words. I hope to reach 50,000 by Wednesday so I will have the challenge over by Thanksgiving and I won’t be thinking about it. The story will not be completed by that time, and I will continue working on it until it is finished, especially since one of my NaNo friends told me that one of the prizes for completing NaNo was a free proof of your book from a self-publishing company and if you publish through them the book will be available on Amazon.com. The offer ends in March, so that means I have to have the story finished and revised and polished before March. I thought NaNo was a challenge!!
But I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving. We are celebrating a bit non-traditionally this year. We’ve invited friends who don’t have anywhere better to go (hee hee) and we are going to have a big party. I’m cooking the turkeys. Two other girlfriends are bringing veggies and desserts. We have movies lined up and a bunco tournament with prizes planned. What gathering would be complete without a game of Phase 10 too? I may have to buy another deck…. But I am really looking forward to it, especially having NaNo behind me!
